Volkswagen Passenger Cars Malaysia (VPCM) has introduced a new insurance programme called the Volkswagen Insurance Plan or VIP. Said to be tailor-made to enhance your VW ownership experience, VIP offers comprehensive coverage with minimal hassle.

As a VIP policy holder, benefits include prioritised claim approval, roadside assistance with 24-hour emergency towing service, and assurance that repair work is conducted at authorised Volkswagen body and paint centres, in accordance to the carmaker’s repair standards with only genuine parts used.

Additionally, there are no excess fees, no betterment cost and an agreed value of up to 10 years. It is open to all Volkswagen models regardless of vehicle age.

VIP can be purchased at any Volkswagen authorised dealership, when registering a new car or during road tax renewal. Allianz General Insurance and Etiqa General Takaful are partner panel insurers. The former offers conventional insurance while the latter offers both conventional and takaful insurance.

“With VIP, all Volkswagen owners regardless of model, can enjoy quality services and roadside assistance at the best value under a comprehensive plan catered exclusively just for them. Our owners are at the core of everything we do and providing this added service to them at our dealerships also ensures that the entire process is streamlined and more convenient, making our Volkswagen dealerships a one-stop centre for customer convenience and peace of mind,” said VPCM MD Erik Winter.

Separately, VPCM recently launched Das WeltAuto in Malaysia, Volkswagen’s global used car programme that offers certified used cars from a trusted source. Think BMW Premium Selection and Mercedes-Benz Certified. More on that here.
